Hey..things happen, so please be honest; if for some reason you aren't able to participate after signing up, please email us so we can take you out of the giveaway & so we keep a correct count. (:
Some ideas are: Home made or store bought costumes that are NON-plastic. NON-plastic candy containers for trick-or-treating (ie made from felt, wooden, cardboard, etc.) If legal & safe, non-plastic wrapped candies (anyone have some ideas here? please post on our facebook wall & share!)
WHY? Most people are unaware that plastic is a huge issue, not just to our planet, but our health. Planet: Plastic will NEVER break down. 2oz. of plastic will ALWAYS be 2oz. of plastic & can only be recycled / up-cycled so many times.
Health: When plastic is used for food or skin care containers, there are health concerns because plastic can leech, especially when warmed up. BPA is not the only harmful chemical in plastic, it's just one that has come to the public's attention.
